Bear Baiting


I saw that there is a permit to bait bears. If you are hunting in a group, do all members of the group need to have this permit, or can one individual who is handling the baiting hold the permit although the others will be using the bait he puts out for their hunt?


Only the person that places the bait is required to have a baiting permit.  Each person can have 1 baiting permit, which allows them to maintain up to 3 bait sites.  People hunting over bait sites, but not involved in placing the bait do not need a permit.  Bear bait permits are only available at IDFG offices beginning March 1 each year.
